A message From Pastor Tim
Hey Liquid Church! I am praising God for you – as you are a KEY PART of how we are Saturating the State with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! 2018 was truly an amazing year here at Liquid: From celebrating 2,000 baptisms since launching as a church, to record-attendance in our Small Groups, to 1.1 million meals packed to feed the hungry and so much more… From my heart to yours, I want to thank you for partnering with us at Liquid and giving us SO MUCH to celebrate as we look back on this year. I encourage you to dive into this Annual Impact Report for the highlights and to see all the powerful ways Jesus has been moving among us this year. I can’t wait to see what He has in store for us in 2019… The best is yet to come, church!

2,000+ Baptisms!

In 2018, we celebrated over 2,000 baptisms since the launch of our church in 2007.

 

435 BAPTIZED… For the first time ever in the history of our church, we saw more than 1 person per day in 2018 make a public declaration to follow Jesus… Representing a fulfillment of God’s vision for the church in Acts 2:47.

“In my battle with alcohol addiction, I was once 13 years sober. I experienced 2 relapses that literally brought me to my knees looking for answers. On Good Friday, I decided that Christ was my answer and instead of turning away from God, I decided to turn toward Him. 1 Corinthians 13:2-8 lays out exactly the emotions I’ve wrestled with all my life... Having talent, but no true love. Having blessings, but no true peace. Enjoying the gifts of life, but with no purpose. With my baptism, I’m declaring a renewed life and mind as I become one with Christ. Now, I can give myself, my daughter, family and friends this true love that I have!”

Middlesex County Grand Reopening

Liquid Morris County

“I accepted Jesus when I finally understood what church is about through coming to Liquid. I learned about the Bible, Jesus and what he sacrificed for me. I was baptized this December because I love Jesus and am proud to be a Christian. My grandma would be so proud. Thanks to my buddies, small group leaders, and friends at Liquid for their love, support and guidance and for teaching me how to follow Jesus.”

In 2018, Liquid served children and adults with Special Needs and their families through:


• Parents’ Night Out & Support Group
• Night To Shine & LOVE Weekend Family Festival
• Buddy Program on Sundays

NIGHT TO SHINE

In 2018, we partnered with the Tim Tebow Foundation to host NJ’s largest Night To Shine prom under one roof! Night To Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience designed especially for teens and adults ages 14 and older with special needs.


500+ Guests
1,000+ Volunteers

“Serving as the Outreach Coordinator at Liquid Middlesex gives me the opportunity to put my faith in action, be the hands and feet of Jesus and make an impact across our county. My favorite day of 2018 was definitely Night to Shine, which is just as special of an event as it is fun and humbling. Being able to help teens and adults with special needs feel loved on and treated like the kings and queens that they are is so rewarding. I love seeing all of the planning, hard work, and all of our awesome volunteers come together to serve... But mostly, I love seeing the look of joy on everyone's faces as they get to enjoy a night designed just for them!”

Clean Water

In 2018, we took clean water teams on trips to Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Rwanda. Since purchasing a drill rig in 2016, 153 wells have been completed in Rwanda bringing clean water to 61,200 people!


The people of Liquid have generously given over $3 MILLION to our Clean Water Cause!

At Liquid Church, we have a passion for Clean Water. We believe that every single person on the planet has a God-given right to clean and safe drinking water. We also believe God has called us to help Rwanda become the first African nation with 100% access to clean and safe drinking water. As a part of our partnership with Living Water International (LWI), I had the privilege of spending 9 days in the heart of this beautiful country. It was so amazing to be the boots on the ground and work alongside the locals to dig the well and bring life-saving water to hundreds of people in the village and neighboring communities. One of my highlights from the trip - or, what I call my “gotcha moment” - occurred when we found a young woman named Margarita, who was first introduced to Liquid 3 years ago while Pastor Tim visited Rwanda on a vision trip for our Clean Water Cause. We originally met her drawing water from a dirty water pond to bring water home... but this time, our team found Margarita healthy, attending school, and drinking clean water from a well that Liquid Church provided. I’m so proud to be a part of a church who helps save people physically while sharing the soul-saving Gospel of Jesus Christ!
